We picked the beauty-filled brain of TLC’s What Not to Wear make-up guru Carmindy for her tips on how to get gorgeous in five minutes. (You’ve got five minutes, right?) We actually managed to do this in less than three!
45 seconds: Use one pump of liquid foundation to wipe over your face quickly. Skip concealer unless you have something major to hide.
15 seconds: Dust on translucent powder to set the foundation and reduce shine.
45 seconds: Apply a highlight of champagne, white or pale pink eye shadow under your eyebrow and at the inside corner of the eye. It gives the eye a lift and makes it look like you have on more shadow.
30 seconds: Smudge chocolate brown eye pencil into your upper lash line. Add one coat of black mascara on top only to look more awake.
15 seconds: Sweep a sheer powder-pink blush over your cheeks with a fluffy brush for a healthy glow.
30 seconds: Slick tinted lip balm over your lips to protect, moisturize and give color all in one step.
